[R] Problem installing local additional packages of Rcmdr (WinXP)

Hi R users:

I download the .zip files and also PACKAGES and PACKAGES.gz files in a local directory, but when I call


It shows me a tcl/tk windows telling me to install the additional packages, the it takes me to another window where I must specify the path where the .zip files are located. I do it, but I obtain the following message:

Loading required package: tcltk
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Loading required package: car
Erro en gzfile(file, "r") : no fue posible abrir la conexión

Versión del Rcmdr 1.1-7

And the Rcmdr frame opens but without installing the additional packages. I am sure I download the required packages and the PACKAGES and PACKAGES.gz files.

What am I doing wrong?

If I make the same procedure with the internet conexion it works fine, but I need to install all the packages in computers without internet conexion.

Thank you for your help.
